For our first couple of runs in 2012 we used the manual method of getting the Cooper off the line. It wasn’t ideal. The first time we tried the Mini came to a halt, stalled, about 50m past the start line and had to be pushed off again. The next day our Ford van had a borrowed blanket wrapped around the front bumper and we never looked back.
